The Lawn Ranger leaps triumphantly, from yard to yard, knoll to brook, fighting overgrown weeds, ungodly insects and gnomes every step of the way. Cream ale in hand, he fights with a brazen display of malted, expertly fermented showmanship. He leaves a trail of hearty good times and happy hours in his wake. We’ll follow you anywhere, Lawn Ranger…

Hazy, Chunky, Oaty, Bready

Drops out of can bright, pale golden with a creamy white lacing, however, the head drops quick and things go hazy with big sediment chunks; not appealing. An oaty breadiness dominates the aroma. Semi-crisp carbonation, medium-bodied, with some watery rinds. Faint rye spiciness, oaty, and bready notes. Hints of bubblegum. Sweet cereal grain finish with an oaty linger. The use of flaked oats seems out of place. This beer could use some serious cleaning up.

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub in Plano.

The beer pours a slightly dirty, hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a some strong banana notes, as well as some cream and wheat notes. The flavor is very similar. I get some sweet malt and a lot of banana and wheat, a handful of flavors that don’t really go well together. Overall, the beer tastes like a mess. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not good, hopefully the brewery will improve as they get more experience. (483 characters)

16 oz can from Ohio.
Hazy yellow-gold body with an ample, creamy white head.
Light malt aroma withfaint spicing.
Flavorful, fruity and spicy for style but still, of course, mild.
Light but not watery with lively carbonation. (227 characters)

16oz can poured into a pint glass

A- pours a hazy golden yellow color with a small creamy white head that retains nicely after the pour, leaving some lace behind

S- adjunct lager aroma with some toasted grain & oat, light sweetness reminiscent of cream soda

T- light creamy sweetness up front gives way to some toasted grainy flavor, just a hint of earthy hop, more toasted malt on the finish with a slight sweet linger

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a creamy, almost chewy mouthfeel that continues through to the finish

O- high drinkability on a straight forward cream ale, the oats added a nice mouthfeel (624 characters)

Thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is sweet, malty. Taste is of malts, clean, refreshing, a touch of rye. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, as advertised, is a fine lawnmower beer. (288 characters)

16 oz tallboy pours a fairly clear gold color with a dense cap of brilliant white head. Nice retention and moderate lacing...this is a good looker.

Nose is definitely traditional Cream Ale - light, soft malts and a touch of sweet fruitiness - maybe in line with pears and honeydew. Hopping is light.

Taste shows honeyed grains leading the charge with some fruity yeast undertones. Hops are light on flavor and aroma but definitely have a touch of bittering to clean things up on the back end. Mouthfeel is well done, it has a sweet side but is certainly not cloying and finishes dry enough. Carbonation level is good. I think this is a pretty dang good rendition of the style - problem is there is not much competition for it. Ive yet to have a Spotted Cow, Id put it above Genessee and Little Kings by a mile, buy a notch below AV Summer Solstice. (850 characters)
